@shoobeedoowop:  I guess I never saw it that way…I like to go to all categories because sometimes I can help or maybe what they say could help me. The bee is a great website so I hope that annoyance doesn’t derail you from loving this site!

@shoobeedoowop:  It seems like none of the “culture” subgroups are particularly active.  Probably because we’re all getting married/interested in weddings, and so the topics are more general.  You cannot expect only one group of people to ever comment on a public thread, though.  Stick around — you’ll see.   

Also, if you see something offensive, you can always flag it or respond to it kindly explaining the problem.  People most likely aren’t doing it on purpose.

@figgnewton:  I get what she is saying and why she is mad. I am a dark skinned visible minority of mixed race and I have come across racism in my life and have come across a lot of white people who are sympathetic but cannot truly relate. It’s usually white people who will make the types of comments she is referring to and I don’t blame her for being irritated.

@shoobeedoowop:  I just read the thread in question, and while some people’s responses reek of white privilege, I promise there is more to this website than just that!  Stick around…you’ll be enraged by some (I PROMISE) but others are great.  

 

 

 

Also go Philly!!!

@shoobeedoowop:  I’m sorry people do that. People have white privilege and don’t even realize it. They think they can give advice/comment when they’ll never know how AAs feel (I’m not AA and all I know is I’ll never grasp how it feels to live in a racist society). 

Sorry you have to come to a wedding board and deal with ignorance/crap. It sucks people don’t have to educate themselves because there’s no pressure to do so – society’s set up to benefit them. 

I promise to lurk and learn!

The more we make this “White issues” and “Black issues” and “Hispanic issues” and “Oriental issues” the more people keep racism alive.

Just sayin.

I think a lot of people just look at the main board and don’t pay much attention to which subforum it’s in, I know I usually don’t. You can always flag a post if you find it so incredibly offensive.

@shoobeedoowop:  If you don’t like what is being said, then reply with your point of view. Internet forums are driven by people’s posts and comments. People will post when and what they want.

@Moonlight_Densetsu:  so do you prefer white people not be sympathetic because they can’t truly relate?! Dear god you can’t win can you?!

I think those two threads are the exception, usually everyone’s just trying to be helpful. Usually lol
